Flavour (sorry fucked up the quote system on my phone.) Which is why most people use it. You know they will have it, you know it is reliable, you know it will arrive in time, and if it doesn't you can send it back hassle free. Lots of people want that reliability. In that sense it's not exactly that much difference from Windows/Apple, or even Android/Apple is it? If enough people used Linux and boycotted the others it would become the go to system and the others would be obsolete. I think you also fail to recognise how easily all of this has slipped into out lives. Amazon, Social media, eBay, Justeat and the internet in general. I think it's only been in more recent times that these things have been exposed for what they are, and by then they had made themselves feel integral to our lives. On top of all of this our indocteration into individualism, capitalism, consumerism, and the value of "hard work" are drilled into us from our early years and then reinforced by school and then in adult life. It will take a long time to change those views and shouting at people isn't going to work. I do think people will make changes, but they will be slow and gradual. It's too much to expect people to change everything at once. To be honest I've had enough of shame culture. We try to constantly shame people for their individual choices, but I personally see the fucked up system we have created as being the main driver for those choices. The use of take away food/convineance food is directly linked to our ever increasing work hours and hectic lives in my opinion. I'm not going to shame people who make those choices and demand they think of the business owners or the people who deliver their food, but I will talk about the systems that make people feel like they have to use them. I feel that many people get more upset with people's individual choices than they do the companies themselves. Maybe that's a power thing? You can attack an individual much easier than take on a massive organisation. I'm not sure boycotting actually makes an iota of difference because the amount needed to force through change is massive. I reckon energies can be much better spent trying to make connections with workers in those sectors and building up grassroots resistance against companies and governments. That's not to say we shouldn't boycott things we don't like, but I don't think it's an answer either. As for the death of the high street, I see this much like Proper Tidy, most people are getting fucked somewhere along the line. Landlords and lack of imagination are also a massive reason for their failure. There are some good shops for sure though and I do actually use my highstreet, but I think it's much more complicated than people just buying things online.
